I know, I can hear you thinking it now....."here is that blogger with more about vintage pocket watches"....well, these watches have a bit of a story behind them.
My hubby purchases antique pocket watches wherever he can find a good deal and mostly they are in disrepair and need a lot of TLC.
He buys them from individuals, estate sales and flea markets etc.
Well, he found these three at an antique flea market a few weeks back and they were not looking so good. But the story here is that the two watches you see that are almost identical were from two spinster sisters who were in their 90's and going to move into a care center and decided to sell a lot of their possessions. Both watches have the womens' names engraved inside and the outside has the letter "B" for their last name.....Beard. The faces of each watch are almost identical and each very lovely. I felt badly that there wasn't someone in their family who would have liked to have these beauties for keepsakes....
The other watch has an unusual drum case and is in almost perfect condition, although it took some work to get it that way.
I, of course, would love to keep all three of these watches, but hubby has a say here soooooooo.....

Thank you for your comments.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Wanted to tell all of you that I'm having a difficult time tonight with the new post editor here on blogspot.....it's flipped some of the photos and I can't get my text where I want it, so I'm giving up for tonight.
